The Word is Out
After flying under the radar for much of his young career, Tomas Plekanec’s days as the Canadiens’ best-kept secret are over. Flanked by linemates Alex Kovalev and Andrei Kostitsyn, Plekanec is now in the spotlight and centering one of the most explosive lines in the NHL.

Road Warriors
There’s been no place like the road for the Habs in 2007-08. With Guy Carbonneau’s crew among the league’s best on opposing turf this season, find out what how far that success could take the Habs come springtime.

Perseverance Personified
Dickie Moore’s work ethic and determination served the Canadiens legend well in his playing days. Decades later, the 77-year-old’s fighting spirit is still going strong, with not even a near-fatal car accident enough to slow him down.  

Future Watch
A natural in front of a camera or a mic, P.K. Subban isn’t too shabby on the ice, either. Fresh off winning gold with Team Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championship, the offensive-minded defenseman is now eyeing a Memorial Cup ring.

Blast from the Past
When he wasn’t busy scoring goals, hockey icon Bobby Hull was ensuring his legions of fans always went home happy. The Golden Jet’s surprise encounter with a future Canadiens forward outside the Forum was certainly proof of that.

Ask Eddy
In the latest installment of our wildly popular feature starring Eddy Palchak, the longtime Habs trainer recalls sleeping at the Forum after grueling road trips, and provides helpful tips on tightening your skates and determining the right stick length.

The Last Word: Elisha Cuthbert
After growing up in the Montreal suburb of Greenfield Park, actress Elisha Cuthbert rose to prominence in the roles of Kim Bauer on TV’s 24 and Danielle in the film The Girl Next Door.  Having just wrapped two new movies, she spoke to us from her home in L.A. to discuss hockey, poutine, Paris Hilton, and other topics.  Click here for the complete interview.
